All year you’ve dreamed of Fakies, Blunt Slides, and bonking off everything in sight. Now, the snow is piling up and you’re on the hunt. The hunt for that perfect set of Kickers, Rainbow Rail or Table Top, and all the Jibs you could ever want. With 38 unique global destinations – and over 28 parks in Colorado alone – accessible on the Ikon Pass, your options for terrain parks are almost limitless.
AspenSnowmass – Buttermilk Terrain Park
Get started with a bang at the legendary launch pad that is Buttermilk. Home of the ESPN Winter X Games for the last 16 years, Buttermilk is the destination for freestyle riders and skiers from around the world to test their skills, as well as their response to fear. In fact, guests get first dibs on the same superpipe and massive slope-style jumps that the pros ride during the competition.
Mammoth Mountain – Unbound Terrain Park
The Unbound Terrain Parks of Mammoth Mountain have been progressing riders’ skills for more than 20 years. With over 100 acres of terrain, featuring a massive variety of parks, 3 halfpipes, 50 jumps, and over 100 jibs, the Unbound Terrain Parks are the perfect place to test some new tricks.
Big Bear Mountain Resort Terrain Parks
No park rider is fulfilled without a trip to the original, the innovator, the mecca that is Big Bear. The first-ever dedicated park – built way back in 1991 – is located at “Bear.” This SoCal mountain has been creating, challenging, and changing the park scene ever since. With new updates and partnerships – like the Red Bull Plaza, full of urban features straight from the street – Bear Mountain parks continue to connect some of the finest lines on the snow.
Whether you’re a grom or a local legend, you want a park that helps you own the day. You want parks with an iconic history and the best events in the industry. You want parks that help you slay one day and progress the next. So grab your Ikon Pass and that bag of tricks you’ve been perfecting. Your park is waiting.
